About detection

Why have blue plasters?

A blue plaster is quickly detectable visually. There is almost no food that is blue by nature. Should a blue plaster end up in the food chain, it can be seen and removed quickly thanks to its blue colour.

Why and when are plasters with detectable metal to be used?

Companies in which food is processed and packaged in large quantities are required to meet the HACCP standard. In the food industry, metal is one of the most common contaminants in food. Metal can be introduced at all stages of food processing, as it is most commonly used in the construction of machinery, handling equipment and ancillary supplies. For packaged products, a metal detector is placed at the end of the packaging line to inspect the closed end package. For this purpose, all Detectaplast® detectable plasters contain 5g/m² aluminium foil between the wound pad and the outer plaster material. This aluminium foil ensures that if a plaster should end up in food, it is automatically detected by the metal detector and can be removed immediately.

Why and when are plasters detectable by X-ray to be used?

Products packaged in metallised film or aluminium trays are normally passed through a conventional metal detection system before packaging. When this is not possible, products packaged in metallised containers must pass through a specialised X-ray inspection system.
The Detectaplast® X-ray plasters contain an X-ray detectable thread made of barium sulphate that has a very high density. As a result, these plasters will be detected by X-ray detectors and thus removed from the food chain. Barium sulphate is also used in the healthcare sector as a contrast agent when making X-rays.

When and how do I use a long plaster?
Lange pleister 01

For extra strength and protection, you can use a long plaster.

\r\n

This plaster can be wrapped around the finger up to three times, ensuring that the edges can be taped off nicely each time. This protects your finger against possible bumps and ensures that dirt and contamination cannot reach the wound.

About first aid

First aid in my business or kitchen: what do I need?

Every employer is required by law to ensure that a first aid kit is present.

\r\n

To ensure that your company is in full compliance in the event of an inspection, it is very important to have a well-stocked first aid kit.

\r\n

Our first aid kits have been specially put together for possible injuries within your specific sector.

\r\n

We have a wide range of items available, and the most comprehensive first aid kits include more materials than a standard first aid kit, such as a rescue blanket, a mouth-to-mouth mask, Flamma cream, etc.

\r\n

In addition, our first aid kits are supplied with a wall bracket as standard. This way, the kit can easily be fixed at a specific location, and nobody will have to search for it if there is an emergency.

How many first aid kits are needed in my company?

Each company is divided into \"units\". A unit is defined as \"each separate room, floor or department\".
For example, if your company has a warehouse, a refectory and an office, then a first aid kit must be present in each of the three locations.

\r\n

As a rule, the kit must be placed at eye level and be accessible to everyone within 30 seconds.

How can I restock my first aid kit?

Check your first aid kit every six months for expiry dates. Products that are past their expiry date should be removed and replaced with new ones.

\r\n

After using an item from your kit, it should be replenished as soon as possible.

\r\n

Standard refill kits are available, and products can also be replaced separately.
